Hats off to you, Dads!

An early happy father's day to all you dads. I for one would be a muttering, frazzled fool without the love and help of my husband - and of course where would I be without my own amazing dad? Look at how he lights up my son's face. I'm indebted to my dad for years of compassion, generosity, and goofiness that I now see reflected in my own son. What a blessing.

So kudos to all you dads, grandpas, stepdads, and every kind of dad in between. Job well done.

Moving on to our more standard material: fantasy football awesomeness. Let's take a look at some end of the week linkage below:
  • If you're all about the mock results (or heck, real draft results), here are a few more to keep you entertained:
  • Looking for some sleeper thoughts? 
  • Speaking of great writers, remember Razzball.com's call for submissions for The Next Great Fantasy Football Writer? It's back again this year so if you've got the fantasy writing skills and  yearn for a little recognition, give it a whirl. 
  • The Hazean reviews the MJD situation from a fantasy perspective, Maurice Jones-Drew's Holdout and Fantasy Owners - good reading for those of us who own MJD in a dynasty league and need to think about potential insurance.
  • Let's get down to a little bit of strategy here - Rotoworld has a two-part piece on using Value Based Drafting - Part I and Part II.
  • I live in a Peyton-loving, Broncos-loving household so trust me, I post the following DavidGonos.com article with sorrow - Peyton Manning is NOT a top 10 quarterback - though I do really like the way he's pulled in commentary and rankings from across the fantasy landscape into his article. Nicely researched.
  • Finally, CBSSports.com has their 2012 team-by-team outlooks up which include a depth chart, 2011 fantasy leaders, and an injury report for all 32 teams. Three nice bits of info to help round out your offseason education.

Back on the fantasy wagon

With my library conferences behind me (for a few weeks at least), I can now concentrate on fantasy football again. If you happen to be a librarian and are interested in how my co-presenter and I tied together fantasy football and information literacy, check out my co-presenter’s blog . Though I imagine most of you would much rather catch up on the following football news and thoughts for the week: I remain a bit dazed and confused by my certainty last summer that Cedric Benson was going to rock my RB2 world in 2007. Didn’t happen and now he’s moved onto ankle surgery, alleged intoxication and resisting arrest on boats. Awesome. You can practically taste Matt Forte’s value skyrocketing here. In fact, wondering about rookie RBs in general? Well then check out FF Xtreme’s The Day After: Ranking the Rookie Running Backs . I love reading articles or stats that challenge my preconceived notions – The Fifth Down’s Chad the Completion Percentage Machine does just that. No offense to thos

Streaming Defenses - Week 16

Don't know about you all, but in our house this week is just chock full of events, visiting with family, and getting organized for our upcoming time off over the holidays. Lots of scrambling going on around here and attempts to install some sense of gratitude in my boys. What am I grateful for this season? Many things but let's start with Bob. Bob has been my fantasy football rock, coming back week after week to post. Hats off to you, Bob, and thank you for your diligent work and research. So here he is with this year's final streaming defense post.  Well it’s the last week of the Fantasy Football Playoffs in most leagues, and my last post of the season. I hope you all found these posts useful. And if I failed you, you have to murder a lot more experts before you get to me. I myself have had a terrible playoff season. I’m out of all but one of my leagues due to the weird games the last two weeks. Between weather that didn’t materialize to normally consistent players co

A hiatus

Update:  It is with a very heavy heart that I tell you all that yesterday, August 30th, I delivered our stillborn daughter, Caroline Mary. This has been an almost surreal and definitely heartbreaking experience and I appreciate the support in each and every one of your notes. Caroline will be honored and loved always. Thank you, thank you, thank you for your thoughts and prayers - they mean the world to our family. I have been a very poor blogger this month and feel I owe you all an explanation, particularly as this is crunch time for draft prep. I hope this is not too personal of a look into my life since I know most of you are just here for the football. I am nearly 18 weeks pregnant and we have learned that our baby (a little girl!) has triploidy, a chromosomal abnormality that means she has three copies of every chromosome instead of the normal two. The doctors have explained that it's a completely random occurrence and fairly rare that she has made it this far along, but tha
